As smart and ruthless as Wilson Fisk may be, he's chosen to enlist the aid of some of the most reprehensible, dangerous and bloodthirsty criminals the Marvel Universe has to offer! He's been able to keep them on a short leash out of fear for weeks.

IN THIS ISSUE - that fear runs out! Fisk's lackeys aren't scared of ANYTHING anymore, even him - and ALL OF NEW YORK is left to pay the price!

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 1, 1970

    Devils Reign #5 shows that this event gets better in every issue. Its a hectic comic, filled with action and dramatic changes. Even with the chaos and the larger than life characters, Zdarsky keeps the dialogue grounded and moments of quiet remain heavy. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 9, 2022

    Devil's Reign #5 is a great penultimate issue as it brings big splashy superhero moments to the forefront while evil dealings in closed-off rooms take place. There seems to be a statement being made here about superheroes being loud and ineffective while true justice remains unseen where it matters most. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 10, 2022

    Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto took the ending of the previous issue to make Devil's Reign #5 the most intense chapter of this event thus far. Throughout this comic book you felt the rage that Wilson Fisk was unleashing onto New York and Marvel's superheroes. The ending, while predictable, sets up the final chapter of Devil's Reign to have serious ramifications for the Marvel Universe however the chips may fall at the conclusion of this event.

    The story itself continues to be fine, despite Kingpin's motivations changing with each issue. As it stands now, Fisk's motivations will surely be his downfall, and it feels like that's something we've seen one too many times before. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 9, 2022

    Devil's Reign #5 continues an entertaining event series but it falls into some traps like the expected extended fight. I hoped the series would deliver something a little different and with one more issue it might, but, this is an issue that feels like it's a bit rougher than the others delivering something we've seen before far too many times.

    Devil's Reign has mostly avoided the pitfalls of big events to this point. Now it's time to see if Zdarsky and co. can stick the landing. Read Full Review
